Superpowered Main Character

Required
Shounen
Male Lead that's > 15 years
Romantic subplot
MC needs to be OP from the getgo or at least have a hidden power that becomes revealed as incredibly OP
Can't be too childish (I'm looking at the one series in particular where the "hero of the world" comes for the demon queen to find that she wants to join him/help agriculture, no)
Doesn't matter if supernatural/isn't supernatural


Medium doesn't matter

I'm thinking of stuff like Kaze no Stigma (this would be the archetype of the stuff I'm looking for), Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Legend of Maian, Code Geass to a limited extent, Seikok no Ryu Kishi, Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance, Zero no Tsukaima (though didn't like that one)

I think Utawarerumono fit all those requirements with the main-guy has a hidden power which unleashed at some point in the anime. Even though there are some laid-back and funny episodes, the story itself is not childish so don't worry about that. It's not your usual shounen like Bleach or Naruto though. It's more like war epic focused on one main character. So it's not like Romance of the Three Kingdoms or Sengoku Basara.

The OP didn't like Fullmetal Alchemist, but hope he might check out the other two.

Maybe Tengen toppa gurren lagann? Eventhough the main character of the story doesn't start at >15 years, but in the 2nd half of the series he is older than that.

How about Shinrei Tantei Yakumo? Guy has a red left eye which enables him to see spirits and ghosts. Solves cases involving supernatural and there's a hint of romance here and there.

Also, Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi and Rental Magica.

I'm not sure about romantic subplot but Tiger & Bunny immediately comes to mind to what you're looking for.

Where is that in the OP? Cause I don't see it, he said he doesn't like Zero no Tsukaima.

Ah, I've made two other looking for threads in this section of the forums, they must have seen them. (The things I'm looking for are different in each thread if you're thinking that next so I figured it'd be less messy/less confusing if I just made a new thread)

I'll look into Utawarerumono's anime sometime then.
Read Chrome Shell/Still reading it off and on.
Yeah the other person was correct with FMA.
Katanagari's actually on my bucket list atm.
Tengen toppa gurren lagann, read up til like a certain point--couldn't get into it much.
Shinrei Tantei Yakumo, I read like the first few chapters. Didn't like it that much (it's the one with the large vertical strips similar to girls of the wild/kubera right?), main character just has a unique ability in an otherwise ordinary world (aside from spirits and stuff yeah)
Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi I looked into a while ago but didn't like the character descriptions I found. I'm probably going to give it another shot soon though, thanks for the reminder.
Rental Magica looks interesting, adding it to my bucket list.
Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou looks interesting as well, also adding that to my bucket list.
Legend of the Legendary Heroes, I *really* wanted to get into the story but the anime story is incomplete and translations don't seem to be going actively on BT--if there's some place where I can read summaries of each arc or something to that effect, that'd be awesome.
Shining Tears X Wind looks really interesting as well, I'll have to look into that sometime as well.
Asu no Yoichi, read that one for a bit--wasn't really my taste though.

Thanks everyone for their suggestions thus far!

Ooh, Ping!
I'm a fan of yours, thanks for the translations dude!
And I'm actually reading that series as well, though off and on. I just finished the elf world arc.

And great to hear that!
Also: will you be resuming work on Blade Dance or have you formally quit that?

True, which is why I didn't mention it, but you should watch it anyway. Homura and Kyoko are manly enough that you don't need male characters.

No romance, and it's probably "seinen" rather than "shounen," but I'll still recommend the Apothecary stories by Nakamura Kenji, "Bakeneko," the final arc of the anthology Ayakashi Samurai Horror Tales, and its twelve-episode sequel, Mononoke. The main character is a travelling medicine seller who also happens to be a demon-slayer.

You might also like Eden of the East. Though the main character isn't really "superpowered" personally, he can summon awesome forces because he's one of twelve "Seleção" who carries a unique cell phone. Imagine an iPhone 4S where Siri has the power the change the world. Has some romance as well.

Seconding Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou: it features a seriously badass protagonist, even tho the plot evolves in a quite fast way, leaving some hole behind; it becomes a bit confusing during the last episodes. It's mainly an action/romance/ecchi anime, with some comedy trait; the protagonist is a demon lord(not a spoiler; watch the first episode). Here's a screen
Spoiler for pic:

You'll get to know how much op he is.
